Just wondering if anyone knows the names/grades of the two bolted lines above Kick to the Head. There's a 7 bolt line that starts from Kick's top anchor and goes to a ledge way up and a two bolt anchor. Then there's another 6 or 7 bolt route that heads up from there. Any ideas?

I forwarded your post to Jim Ewing (Sterling rope engineer), who's climbed there a lot (as it's all WAY too hard for me) and this was his response:

"He means Kick to the Teeth. One line up there is called Block Buster 10c/d and is very nice and well worth doing. I like to use it as a warm up for the harder routes. The other one I've done but can't remember the name. I believe it's about 11something. Definitely no harder than 12a. It's not really worth doing."

Perhaps a misunderstanding.....I'm not talking about the routes next to Kick to the Teeth. I'm talking about two new bolted pitches above Kick to the Teeth.
